Teens

The teenage years bring lots of changes that can make you feel overwhelmed. Your body changes, making you look and sound more like an adult, and keeping up with friends can be like a full-time job. But what you might not notice is that your brain is also changing a lot. During this time, you learn new life skills, gain more independence, spend more time with friends instead of family, and start thinking about your life goals and values. These are exciting but also challenging parts of growing up.

With all these changes, it’s no surprise that you might find yourself yelling one moment and crying for no reason the next. Alongside the exciting new stuff in your life, you’ll also have new stresses and worries about family, friends, school, your body, your future, and who you are.

It’s important to know that signs of mental health problems often show up during the teenage years. About half of people who have a mental health issue later in life start having symptoms before they turn 14. But sometimes, teenagers and their families don’t realize these signs until a few years later. It can be hard to tell the difference between what’s normal and what might be a mental health issue, especially for young people in low-income families or communities where they face things like racism and discrimination.

The good news is that if you do have a mental health issue, getting help early can help you find healthy ways to handle your teenage years and prepare for adulthood.
